  • Patent number: 10100247
    Abstract: Polymer-coated proppants for hydraulic fracturing of oil and gas wells have an outer layer portion that comprises an organofunctional coupling agent, preferably an organofunctional silane coupling agent. The use of an organofunctional silane coupling agent in the outer layer portion of the proppant coating is preferably chosen to expose functionalities that will be reactive towards similar functionalities of adjacent and similarly coated proppants so that, when introduced downhole, these proppants form interparticle bonds at the temperatures and crack closure pressures found downhole in fractured strata. Such enhanced interparticle bonding helps keep the proppant in the fracture and maintains conductivity with reduced flowback. The invention also helps proppants designed for low temperature well to bond more firmly and allows proppants designed for high temperature wells to bond well even at lower downhole temperatures, thereby extending their useful range.

    Abstract: A composition for a biosample treatment and method for nucleic acid amplification using the same are provided. The composition for biosample treatment includes at least one halocarbon, at least one polyether and at least one surfactant. The composition contains 1˜70% by weight of the halocarbon based on the total weight of the composition. Accordingly, a biosample can be lysed and homogenized in a single tube at one step. Furthermore, reagents for use in nucleic acid amplification can be directly added in the same tube for nucleic acid amplification at the next step. The process, operation periods and risks of contamination can be therefore reduced and a result of nucleic acid amplification with less background noises can be therefore obtained as well.

  • Patent number: 8633029
    Abstract: Provided is an efficiency improving agent for gene transfer to mammalian cells, a method for improving efficiency of gene transfer to mammalian cells, and a method for transforming mammalian cells. The method is characterized in that tRNA is used in combination with a lipofection reagent. Preferably, the agent may be used so that the tRNA concentration in a lipofection solution falls within the range of 3 to 50 ?g/mL, and the concentration in a culture is approximately 1/10. More preferably, tRNA and PEG may be used in combination with a lipofection reagent. According to the present invention, gene transfer to mammalian cells with high efficiency can be achieved.
